Today’s Untz: Sunset feat. Marques Toliver/ Compuphonic

“We are the music that we create” and this has never been more true than with “Sunset”, Compuphonic, alias Maxime Firket’s new maxi single on the prestigious Berlin ‘Get Physical’ label in anticipation of his debut album in 2013. For the occasion Maxime got together with American soul singer/violinist Marques Toliver (Bella Union, Bat For Lashes, Grizzly Bear, Holly Miranda, Mechanical Bride), to create a piece of hedonistic house that is entirely characteristic of his style. Spontaneous, positive, natural, open to large spaces, ambitious but always accessible. “All these elements are the common denominator of my music”, explains Maxime, “In my productions, I naturally search for originality, but also simplicity, efficiency, emotion and some sort of positive melancholy.” #untz/tom
